    You aren't going to get either of those for 101 points.

    Ah I misread. Anyway, I kind of doubt someone's going to give away 10k+ points either (unless they _really_ like you).

    People do still trade points for games around here, but you won't get any games you are wanting with what you currently have. 1,000 points are equal to $1 USD, so you're sitting at a rough $1.10 with how many points you currently have. You're going to need to rack up quite a bit of points in order to be able to trade them for anything.

From what I can tell after looking through the new directory setup for CS:S (I took a look at cstrike_pak_dir.vpk for the full structure), it doesn't look like it's possible to create a new night-vision effect for CS:S. The .VMT for night-vision no longer points to a .VTF that is actually listed within the game's files, and trying to extract the .VTF from the .GCF that was previously being used isn't possible since the game no longer actually uses it (GCFScape gives you an error about the archive not being entirely there). Unless someone else figures out how night-vision works in CS:S now, I don't think that can be done at this time.

    It's a shame that Big Ross's hosting crumbled and his backsup busted. Even though it wasn't offical the FXB kept the economy and idea of points for things alive.

Unless someone else figures out how night-vision works in CS:S now, I don't think that can be done at this time. I've actually figured it out. It's possible to create custom vpks for mods. I will make a tutorial tomorrow when I finish his blue NV.
